ThereČ??s a very interesting report at
http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/ss6402a1.htm?s_cid=ss6402a1_x

Five industries accounted for almost one third of all injured persons: truck transportation, educational services, chemical manufacturing, utilities, and food manufacturing, but of particular concern is their finding that
"Chemical manufacturing (NAICS 325) (23%) was the industry with the most incidents; however, the number of chemical incidents in chemical manufacturing decreased substantially over time (R2 = 0.78), whereas the educational services category (R2 = 0.65) and crop production category (R2 = 0.61) had a consistently increasing trend.Č??

The nine states in the study are Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin.
